Sports equipment manufacturer Select has agreed to become the new official ball partner of North America’s United Soccer League.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it was confirmed the partnership will begin in the 2018 season.
The agreement will cover all USL-related properties, including the primary USL competition, USL Division II, the Premier Development League and the Super Y League.
Select will provide each USL club with licensed and official replica match balls, as well as support the new partnership with a range of marketing and advertising activities.
The deal comes as Select also prepares to take over as the official ball provider to Germany’s Bundesliga and 2.Bundesliga club football competitions from the 2018-19 season.
